Oprah is an amazing woman. Interestingly, that is a statement that has been used to cliché throughout her 50-year career in the entertainment industry. It’s worth considering. Just how amazing is Oprah Winfrey? Well, she’s as influential as America’s First Lady. She is good friends with former First Lady Michelle Obama. The fact is, Oprah could easily be elected the first woman President of the United States.
She’s also an entertainment mogul who is worth $3 billion. And, Oprah single-handedly built her media empire from scratch. To accomplish this, she lifted herself out of abject poverty from deep in the heart of a racist Mississippi. Now lets take a look at her incredible life and an incredible house, she definitely worked very hard for it..
The Origins of a Media Queen
Oprah started as a news anchor for a local TV station. Next, she was hired to host a talk show in Chicago. She resurrected that talk show from an abysmal, last-place in ratings to first, making it the city’s highest-rated program. She flipped it practically overnight, and, eventually, it was hers. On that iconic talk show, she grew to be America’s spiritual leader and best friend. Whether it was picking the best diet plan, selecting choice monthly reads, or walking people away from grief to empathy, she was always there for viewers.
Her compassionate nature has been key to her success. It’s also indicative of her status as one of the nation’s most philanthropic people. To date, she’s donated $425 million to a variety of causes. She also never fails to fearlessly direct her media presence toward the good in this world, non-gratis, and oftentimes up against virulent backlash. So, where does America’s demigod live? What is it like being Oprah? Let’s find out!
